Last Week I had the pleasure to b allowed to come to the live casting of Maniera. Maniera was a dream for me for a long time and I was very happy, that I made it through the first round and was invited to the live castings.
Maniera always stood for some extraordinary for me. The magazine they do, always was made in high quality and the models who are working there are all wonderful girls and guys with a great sense of fashion and style.
The live casting had a very cool theme and it was told in a little story so that I would like to just steal the words off the NC I got from Katherine Comet (Yes, I asked her and I may use them she said. Thanks for that Kat 😉 )
Your talent agent has gotten you an audition to be a supporting role in a Jungle Safari Thriller movie as the sidekick assistant to the leading actor who is a Detective trying to solve the case of a missing person. You’ve been told you would be carrying all of the detective’s paraphernalia but you have to look good doing it. You really want to knock their socks off with your knowledge and incredible ability to look like you’ve “been there, done that.” Your audition will take place on location, IN THE JUNGLE, so you have to be prepared.
You know you have to be practical; the bugs and animals are out in full force but have been told you may not use any prim material which covers your face! You MUST get this job as your career depends on it.
How would you dress and be prepared for the perils of jungle life, but still look the part of the supporting role in this major movie production?
You’ve been given the storyline and requirements; now roll with it, have fun and good luck!”
The challenge it self was great fun for me. I tried to slip into that role and thought about it very seriously.. about not having high heels walking through a jungle and carry stuff around, about all the bugs and little animals that would eat me up if my clothing would be too short and show too much skin… all that stuff. And while I was searching through my inventory all that old movies like Indiana Jones, Crocodile Dundee, The Mummy and many more came into my mind and slowly a look was born. Thanks to all of the judges that made one of my dreams come true and took me to Maniera as a proud Maniera Model 🙂
